How Students Can Be A Part Of ISRO

ISRO offers internships and project opportunities to students still in school or college


NEW DELHI: Chandrayaan 2 had the entire nation glued to their screens. The moon missionhas certainly piqued the interest of the entire nation in India’s space programme including that of young students with the potential to become prospective scientist. To encourage and include students, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) had also organized an online quiz competition to select 2 students from each of the states and Union Territories to watch the Chandrayaan 2 landing on moon with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Students, however, do not have to wait for ISRO to organize a quiz to experience what goes behind a space mission. ISRO offers internships and student programmes which provides students an opportunity to be a part of its various projects.

ISRO Internships

The Indian Space Programme includes Internships (Summer Internship, Winter Internship, Long Term Internship), curriculum based projects (Projects for B.E., B.Tech, M.E., M.Tech, etc.), conduct of multi-theme and multi-level training programme / awareness workshops, etc.
